Mercury Fur Ed2016

If blood, guts and gangs are your thing, this is the play for you. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic fictional but parallel world, brought to life by this Glaswegian company of young adults who manage with nothing but talented actors and outstanding direction. The intimate but powerful performance leaves audiences in utter disgust, distress and discomfort – I see audiences grab each other by the hand, whilst my friend tells me she wishes she could stop the performance. If you’re a fan of In-Yer- Face Theatre then this is a great representation of how it should be done – Philip Ridley would have been proud!

C cubed, until 28 Aug.
